It has been claimed that former One Direction star Zayn Malik split up with his fiancée of two years, Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards, by sending her a text message. Ouch!

Their engagement is reported to have ended two weeks ago.

British newspaper The Sun quotes a source as saying: "He ended their engagement with one text message and in the two weeks since there's been complete radio silence between them."

"Who does that? She's devastated, which everyone understands, but is doing her best to focus on work and to put on a brave face in public," the source added.

The stars began dating in 2012 and became engaged in August 2013. They had recently purchased a house.
